[LanX]: both acceptable
[LanX]: Friend of my worked for an international cooperation in Singapore and said the guys with the biggest communication problems were the native speakers ... pointing out an australian guy who needed a year to notice that nobody understood him
[Eily]: ah yes, I've starting feeling more confident about my accent when I realised I'm always going to be pronuncing it wrong for someone anyway :)
[Eily]: started*
[ambrus]: LanX: native speakers are close, but they aren't on the top. there are a _few_ foreigners who have such a thick accent that it takes more time to get used to it and understand the words behind than even the worst native speaker accents.
[ambrus]: but yes, typically native English speakers, who think that English is still their exclusive property, are the worst.
[LanX]: Eily: do you live in an English speaking country?
[LanX]: I think foreigners tend to simplify their phrases, whereby often native speakers don't know how to adapt
[Eily]: nope, France
[LanX]: That's pretty true for every language
